Here is mine. I found some dirt under a deck and used 1/4 inch hardwire to strain out the bigger pieces. The dirt was dry making it ideal. The dirt bath is under a covered area so ideally it will stay dry.



The box is made out of 1x6 cedar. I think the box is 20 inches by 24 inches or so.

Super formal, lol - it's an area of the horse pasture where the vegetation is gone and we've worked the dirt up for them.

Interested to get more info on dust baths. Is it crucial that they have this? After reading a few posts I was thinking of a small plastic tub, with half sand half food grade DE.
